Barranquero says their success in winning larger tenders is anchored in Avocado’s ongoing investment to evolve with the changing technology landscape.

“Avocado has emerged as a recognised local leader competing with the global providers in the Managed Services domain.

Barranquero says having local people that can work onsite with inhouse teams is truly valued by their clients.
“Avocado’s Managed Service offers qualified consultants who undergo robust inhouse training and industry certification programs. Avocado boast one of the largest and most accredited teams in Australia. We source our talent locally, including hiring and developing university IT graduates,” Barranquero says.
